sorry to start a new thread, but I'm soooooo fkn pissed right now that its not even funny. here's whats happening.... from my previous thread, i bought a macbook today from a craigslist ad. it was in GREAT condition, but i decided to go ahead and do a reformat on it (by the way, i had to search on how to do this since i'm a first tiime mac owner) ok, so i call myself reformatting (which took a few hours) and when os x loaded up, i noticed that everything was STILL on the machine. (files, apps, saved passwords, etc). i figured out that i didnt select to erase everything whenever i chose to reformat it, so i decided to try it again- this time selecting the right option. i chose to erase everything (which at the time i thought was the right decision), & rebooted the machine with os x install disks the installer pops up on reboot, and tries to install, but i get this fucking Install Failed -- Mac OS X could not be installed on your computer. The Installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install. I've tried to do this shit like 7 times and i keep getting the same error message. I'm able to open up the disk utility and i ran tests to verify & repair the hd, but it says everything is ok-- so I'm at a lost on what to do. This shit is HIGHLY frustrating because ALL I WANTED was a fresh start to set up my own profiles, etc and feel like a brand new user. Can this be resolved or did I just kill my bank account on a busted machine?! I've searched the internets as best as I could for an answer but have found nothing... and then again I don't speak fancy mac languages. I feel like fucking crying right now.
